I think Kobe comes back just as strong next year.

Guys probably excited about the entire situation. Suffers his first MAJOR injury. Everyone doubts him. The guy lives for challenges and proving people wrong.

The thing is, it won't really be about his work ethic this time, because he can work as hard as humanly possible, which is obviously going to happen because it's Kobe, but if his explosiveness and range of motion aren't the same once healed, he isn't going to be the same Kobe. Then the real test will come, to see if he can change his game for the betterment of the team.

I have to agree. It's been almost 2 months since they had a dominate win over a good team. Ginobili has been playing terribly this season compared to his usual and I'm not sure if he will be able to increase his level of play in the playoffs. Even though he is only averaging 23 minutes a game he still can't manage to stay healthy. As for Parker the injury has taken a toll on him and he needs to be healthy before the playoffs or else the Spurs won't even be able to get out of the first round. The only player who has been a stud from the start of the season till now for the Spurs is Duncan and he won't be able to do it himself in a 7 game series.

If the big three aren't at the top of their game the Spurs bench is usually stagnant because nobody on the bench can create their own shots.

Sixers just got beat by the Pistons. DANGIT! Blazers trying to move up in the draft. We've lost 11 straight games, our tank needs reliable allies to survive this battle. C'mon Philly!!

9th seed here we come!

And wow had no idea Portland has lost 11 in a row. You guys sure no how to tank, I`m pretty jealous. Meanwhile, we could potentially move all the way to 12 in the draft lotto to piss of all those OKC fans.

Stephen Curry just two 3 pointers away from setting the record for most threes in a season. I hope he plays next game.

10:30 pm - GSW @ POR
10:30 pm ESPN - HOU @ LAL


Warriors (6th or 7th seed):

If Warriors win, they'll be 6th seed.
If Warriors lose and Houston loses, Warriors will be 6th seed.
If Warriors lose and Houston wins, Warriors will be 7th seed.

Rockets (6th, 7th, or 8th):

If Rockets win and Warriors lose, Rockets will be 6th seed
If Rockets win and Warriors win, Rockets will be 7th seed
If Rockets lose, they'll be 8th seed.

Lakers (7th, 8th, or 9th)

If Lakers win, they'll be 7th seed
If Lakers lose and Utah loses, LALl be 8th seed
if Lakers lose and Utah wins, LAL will be 9th seed and out of playoffs

Jazz (8th or 9th)

If Jazz win and Lakers lose, Utah will be 8th seed
If Jazz win and Lakers win, Utah will be 9th and out of playoffs
If Jazz lose they'll be out of playoffs.

please happen

It's a bit less delicious with Kobe being injured but it would still be pretty tasty

well, it could be the difference between the 10th and 12th pick, so that's really good

Why is Memphis/Utah blacked out on league pass? I can't find it on cable.

Miami vs Milwaukee
Chicago vs Brooklyn
Indiana vs Atlanta
NYK vs Boston


Miami in 4

Brooklyn in 6

Indiana in 5

NYK in 6




Who you got in the EC playoffs? IMO the WC will be far far more interesting.
